Last night I decided to take a second look at a link that was sent from a bunch of marketers in regards to a fundraiser benefit webinar for a young girl with bone cancer named Sophie. I had first looked with my smartphone and was not able to get the full details as my phone was acting up and not loading pages quick enough.
I wanted to check it out again for two different reasons. The first was to see of course what they were doing to raise funds, while the second was to see how I could help. I have three small girls and know I would be at a loss of words if such a large group of marketers got together for a fundraiser.
Over 100 marketers donated their products and efforts to this cause. Everything from WordPress plugins to Facebook apps, coaching videos and more was provided in a membership website to anyone willing to put up a donation of a mere $99.
I was fortunate enough to get back on the live training that they were providing for about 12 hours, when legendary marketer Matt Bacak was on. I was fortunate enough to be on (and stay away enough) to be able to take advantage of donating and joining while he was on because he was also providing a major bonus with a physical product he has rights to with the Glazer-Kennedy group.
How could I pass this up. A small donation of $99 to help a small girl with cancer and in return, thanks to all these great marketers, I now have in my hands what will turn out to be well over $20,000 in physical and digital products that will allow me to become a better marketer and person, as not all products were related to IM.
I was also able to see my IM buddy Laura Betterly, who I have taken a couse with and from in the past as she spoke about local media marketing! There were others of course that I missed and the live facebook comment feeds were going to fast at times to keep up with them as over 300 guests were watching as well.
The goal of course as I build my business is to be able to give more back, just like these marketers are doing to. Giving of their time and products to help others out may seem like a small gesture, but it carries a lot of weight with them.
These marketers are able to build their lists as well which is a bonus for them giving away products they normally charge anywhere from $47-thousands of dollars for. Their goal as always is to help others and this is just what they are doing here and in their offerings.
So not only are hundreds of marketers helping out this small child, they are also helping to develop their community as well. Internet marketing is often looked down upon, as though it is a scam or a scheme. The truth though is that there are real people carrying out successful full time businesses online and helping many people meet their needs.
In the end, this little girl now has a better chance to beat her disease. Her parents most likely would not have been able to afford the bills they are going to face and this is going to help them as 100% of the $99 was going to her cause.
Whether you were able to experience this and help out or help out in another way, you make a difference in others lives. It is easy to make that difference a positive one, while negative ones can exist if you do not put a little thought into your efforts before hand.
Just like a small child, you need to handle your actions with care and it usually works out for you in the end. Your goal to should to make more and give back more. When you can provide that solution to someone’s problem, success will always be behind.
Here’s wishing to Sophie’s success and the success of everyone reading this in 2012 and beyond.
A couple summers ago, I took an online course in Social Media and one of the main stars was Laura Betterly. Recently, she developed her own course, Mobile Local Fusion, http://bit.ly/LauraBetterly that brings Mobile technology to the forefront of the online world.
If you are business owner, this course is a must. As mobile media continues to develop in terms of smart phones alone (think ipads etc., as well) business are scrambling in order to keep up with the changes in order to continue to provide their clients with the services they need. Advertising has flipped from mailings and phone book listings, to listing online. Did you know that with your smart phone you can click a phone link in your internet search and it can dial the number for you. How cool is that!
As the big players like Google are controlling the waves online, they also have the technology to send you local businesses to your phone when you do a search, regardless of where you are. The satellites will pick up on your location and give you the most relevant business for the terms you enter into your search.
Laura Betterly’s Mobile Local Fusion, http://bit.ly/LauraBetterly provides the necessary means to to get your business listed at the top of the search rankings. Who wants to be listed on page 2? And if you are on the top, are you sure you do not want to risk losing this spot. So all are involved here.
From setting up your google place page to other major search engines like yahoo and bing, to providing options for client retention, outsourcing work and of course keeping you on the 1st page of the search engine. If you think about it, how many businesses ask you for a testimonial, or to write a review for them online? This is just one of the many suggestions made in Mobile Local Fusion, http://bit.ly/LauraBetterly that will provide the needed online juice to keep your business working well.
From my own perspective, I have been through the course when it first opened and have seen my sites come out on page one. I live in Camillus, NY, which is the home of the West Genesee Wildcat Lacrosse team, who has for years been on or near the top of the country rankings. So when you do a search for Camillus Lacrosse, one would think you would come up with the wildcats etc., however following Laura Betterly’s course, it is my lacrosse website, BasicLacrosse.com that shows up instead.
Regardless of whether you are a big business or a small mom and pop shop in the village, you can get yourself to the top to be ranked. I have received at least half a dozen phone calls recently just from people doing searches on their phones or online for services I offer. The way I see it, the price of the course was paid for with just one of the clients. The modules help with customer retention will help in regards to the lifetime value of the client. Being able to continue to bring in clients this way will show you that her course is extremely underpriced and comes with my highest recommendation.
So go check out the video that our other friend, Ryan Deiss put together that gives a little more insight into the course at http://bit.ly/LauraBetterly where he will take you inside Mobile Local Fusion a bit more.
